Deu 6:4 Hear, O Yashar’el: Yahuwah Elohaynu, Yahuwah Echad. ‘” This was the most beautiful cry to YaHuWaH that we have ever heard. It is taken from www.devotedtoyah.wordpress.com and its original link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uf1JK…SHOW MORE
This PDF is more as to a quick response to the Yahad’s group, Stephen Kraner’s quest on: ” If there is a better understanding as to WHY the 27th day of the second month is the completion of the flood, I am open to an explanation.” In the below PDF, the 17th on the 2nd Month is NOAH’s 601 birthday, and it is exactly 364 days /Yearly, an anniversary day, a TIME Marker of Noah, he was observing the 364 days Calendar! Even though the earth was dry, he waited for another 10 days till YHWH said it was safe to get out of the ARK. However, according to Jubilee, he only let most of the animals out on the 27th on the second month , and he himself as well as his whole family, Officially, they waited till 1st day of the 3rd Month and got out from the ARK by setting up an altar to יהוה, [YHWH ‘s Covenant with Noah]Gen 8:20 And Noah built an altar to יהוה, and took of every clean beast and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. Jubilee 5:31-32… and on the seventeenth day in the second month the earth was dry. And on the twenty-seventh thereof he opened the ark, and sent forth from it beasts, and cattle, and birds, and every moving thing Jubilee 6: 1 6:1 And on the first day of the third month he went forth from the ark, and built an altar on that mountain.
Gen 6:5 And יהוה saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Gen 6:6 And יהוה was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
Gen 6:7 And יהוה said, “I am going to wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping creature and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
Gen 6:8 But Noaḥ found favor in the eyes of יהוה.
Noah and the Flood
Gen 6:9 This is the genealogy of Noaḥ.
Noaḥ was a righteous man, perfect in his generations. Noaḥ walked with Eloah.
21 And He commanded Noah to make him an ark, that he might save himself from the waters of the flood.
22 And Noah made the ark in all respects as He commanded him, in the twenty-seventh jubilee of years, in the fifth week in the fifth year (on the new month of the first month). [1307 A.M.]
23 And he entered in the sixth (year) thereof, [1308 A.M.] in the second month, on the new month ( 1st ) of the second month, till the sixteenth; and he entered, and all that we brought to him, into the ark, and YAHUWAH closed it from without on the seventeenth evening.
24 And YAHUWAH opened seven flood-gates of heaven, And the mouths of the fountains of the great deep, seven mouths in number
25 And the flood-gates began to pour down water from the heaven forty days and forty nights, And the fountains of the deep also sent up waters, until the whole world was full of water.
26 And the waters increased upon the earth: Fifteen cubits did the waters rise above all the high mountains, And the ark was lift up above the earth, And it moved upon the face of the waters.
27 And the water prevailed on the face of the earth five months -one hundred and fifty days.
28 And the ark went and rested on the top of Lubar, one of the mountains of Ararat.
29 And (on the new month) in the fourth month the fountains of the great deep were closed and the flood-gates of heaven were restrained; and on the new month of the seventh month all the mouths of the abysses of the earth were opened, and the water began to descend into the deep below
30 And on the new month of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen, and on the new month of the first month the earth became visible.
31 And the waters disappeared from above the earth in the fifth week in the seventh year [1309 A.M.] thereof, and on the seventeenth day in the second month the earth was dry.
32 And on the twenty-seventh thereof he opened the ark, and sent forth from it beasts, and cattle, and birds, and every moving thing.
Noah Went Forth from The Ark And Made Atonement
1 And on the new month of the third month he went forth from the ark, and built an altar on that mountain.
2 And he made atonement for the earth and took a kid and made atonement by its blood for all the guilt of the earth; for everything that had been on it had been destroyed, save those that were in the ark with Noah.
4 And YAHUWAH smelt the goodly savior, and He made a covenant with him that there should not be any more a flood to destroy the earth; that all the days of the earth seedtime and harvest should never cease; cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night should not change their order, nor cease forever.
15 And He gave to Noah and his sons a sign that there should not again be a flood on the earth.
16 He set His bow in the cloud for a sign of the eternal covenant that there should not again be a flood on the earth to destroy it all the days of the earth.
17 For this reason it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets, that they should celebrate the “Feast of Weeks” in this month once a year, to renew the covenant every year.
23 And on the new month of the first month, and on the new month of the fourth month, and on the new month of the seventh month, and on the new month of the tenth month are the days of remembrance, and the days of the seasons in the four divisions of the year. These are written and ordained as a testimony forever.
24 And Noah ordained them for himself as feasts for the generations forever, so that they have become thereby a memorial unto him
25 And on the new month of the first month he was bidden to make for himself an ark, and on that (day) the earth became dry and he opened (the ark)and saw the earth.
26 And on the new month of the fourth month the mouths of the depths of the abyss beneath were closed. And on the new month of the seventh month all the mouths of the abysses of the earth were opened, and the waters began to descend into them.
27 And on the new month of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen, and Noah was glad
28 And on this account, he ordained them for himself as feasts for a memorial forever, and thus are they ordained.
29 And they placed them on the heavenly tablets, each had thirteen weeks; from one to another (passed) their memorial, from the first to the second, and from the second to the third, and from the third to the fourth
30 And all the days of the commandment will be fifty two weeks of days, and (these will make) the entire year complete. Thus it is engraved and ordained on the heavenly tablets.
31 And there is no neglecting (this commandment) for a single year or from year to year
32 And command you the children of Yisrael that they observe the years according to this reckoning- three hundred and sixty-four days, and (these) will constitute a complete year, and they will not disturb its time from its days and from its feasts; for everything will fall out in them according to their testimony, and they will not leave out any day nor disturb any feasts.
33 But if they do neglect and do not observe them according to His commandment, then they will disturb all their seasons and the years will be dislodged from this (order), [and they will disturb the seasons and the years will be dislodged] and they will neglect their ordinances. They will not find the path of the years, and will forget the new months, and seasons, and Shabbats and they will go wrong as to all the order of the years.
35 For I know and from henceforth will I declare it unto you, and it is not of my own devising; for the book is written before me, and on the heavenly tablets the division of days is ordained, lest they forget the feasts of the covenant and walk according to the feasts of the Gentiles after their error and after their ignorance.
36 For there will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon-how it disturbs the seasons and comes in from year to year ten days too soon.
37 For this reason the years will come upon them when they will disturb (the order), and make an abominable (day) the day of testimony, and an unclean day a feast day, and they will confound all the days, the kodesh with the unclean, and the unclean day with the kodesh; for they will go wrong as to the months and Shabbats and feasts and jubilees.
38 For this reason I command and testify to you that you may testify to them; for after your death your children will disturb them, so that they will not make the year three hundred and sixty-four days only, and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new months and seasons and Shabbats and festivals, and they will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh
Proof Of 364 Day Solar Calendar In The Bible (without Quoting 1 Enoch Or Jubilees)
A comparison of the below two calendars:
on the right is a 364 days Zadok calendar and
on the left is a 360days year with 30 days each month Calendar
A Quick revision of the distinctive features of the Zadokite Priestly Order Calendar:
Attached are some interesting discussions over the Enoch Zadokite Solar Calendar and moon based calendar
JUBILEES 2 1 And the malak of the presence spoke to Mosheh according to the word of YAHUWAH, saying: Write the complete history of the creation, how in six days YAHUWAH ALMIGHTY finished all His works and all that He created, and kept Shabbat on the seventh day and hallowed it for all ages, and appointed it as a sign for all His works.
17 And He gave us a great sign, the Shabbat day, that we should work six days, but keep Shabbat on the seventh day from all work.
18 And all the malakim of the presence, and all the malakim of sanctification, these two great classes –He has bidden us to keep the Shabbat with Him in heaven and on earth.
28 And every one who observes it and keeps Shabbat thereon from all his work, will be kodesh and Baruch throughout all days like unto us.
32 And the Creator of all things baruch this day which HE had created for barakah and making it kodesh and splendid above all days.
Throughout history,, today we can look to the Jews, who have tracked and kept the seventh-day Sabbath for millennia and be confident that our current Saturday is the seventh day of the week, on the same weekly cycle that has been in place since the beginning of creation—a cycle established and confirmed by The Most High YAHUWAH Himself.
Interesting Video: Even Beavers know when it is the Sabbath- Saturday. A16 years documentary !
Calendars printed in the United States put Saturday as the seventh day, but in Europe and other places in the world, Sunday is shown as the seventh day. So how can we be sure?
The seven-day weekly cycle is not tied to any patterns or alignments of the sun, moon, or stars. It is a non-stop serial counting of days, one after the other. Scripture tells us the cycle was established by The Most High YAHUWAH. After six days of creation, The Most High YAHUWAH rested on the seventh day (Genesis 2:1-2). Since then, the counting off days in groups of sevens—with each group called a week and every seventh day designated as a day of rest—has continued unbroken up to our own time.
English-speaking countries call the seventh day Saturday, but the word for that day in many languages indicates its origins as the biblical day of rest. For example, the seventh day in Spanish is called Sabado (coming from the Hebrew shabbat). This too is made plain on printed calendars in those languages.
Language reflects the customs of the culture that speaks it. Nearly every culture, from Babylon through modern times, rested on the seventh day. As languages developed, the name for the seventh day of the week remained “rest day.” In the mid-19th century, Dr. William Meade Jones created this “Chart of the Week,” listing the name for the seventh day in 160 languages, including some of the most ancient (shown below). Babylonian, in use hundreds of years before Abraham or the giving of the Ten Commandments at Sinai, calls the seventh day of the week sa-ba-tu, meaning “rest day.”
Such widespread use of forms of the word Sabbath for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, is clear evidence that speakers of these languages understood which day is the Sabbath.
Likewise, the fact that in no language do we see “Sabbath” similarly linked with Sunday, the first day of the week, is an obvious confirmation that this day never was considered the biblical Sabbath until later religious leaders tried to substitute Sunday for the true Sabbath day.
Which day of the week is the biblical Sabbath? It is clear from the names for the seventh day of the week, Saturday, in many languages.
Could we have lost our place?
If you have ever tried to count off numbers in a sequence you know how easy it is to lose your place. Could this have happened with the counting of the seventh day? After all, it has been a very long time since The Most High YAHUWAH established the first day of rest.
If the sequence had gotten all jumbled up sometime between the first day of rest and the Exodus of Israel out of Egypt, the true seventh day was clearly reestablished by the time the Ten Commandments were given.
We can conclude confidently that our current Saturday is the seventh day of the week, on the same weekly cycle that has been in place since the beginning of creation—a cycle established and confirmed by The Most High YAHUWAH Himself.
In the wilderness, The Most High YAHUWAH fed the people of Israel with manna. The manna would appear on the ground every day except the seventh day, the day of rest (Exodus 16:14-30). This sequence would repeat every seven days, over and over for 40 years. The weekly cycle of manna only stopped when Israel entered the promised land. Four decades of repetition is plenty of time to clearly establish which day was the day of rest.
If the Sabbath had somehow been lost between creation and the exodus, 40 years of weekly miracles would have definitely reestablished.
The Exodus was still an exceedingly long time in the past. Plus, Israel went through many periods of turmoil, forgetfulness of The Most High YAHUWAH, invasion, deportation, etc. Could Israel—and later the Jewish people—have mixed up the sequence of counting the seven-day weekly cycle through all that?
Yahushua Messiah, the very Word of The Most High YAHUWAH, put off the Esteem and Honor He shared with the Father and was born a flesh and blood human being. He was the “Master of the Sabbath” (Matthew 12:1-8; Mark 2:23-28; Luke 6:1-5). Yahushua Messiah would have known if He, or His fellow Jews, had the sequence of the seventh day messed up.
The record of Yahushua Messiah’ life shows He rested on the seventh day in obedience to the commandment (John 15:10). Yahushua Messiah observed the day of rest on the same day of the week as His fellow Jews. The religious authorities of the day may have disputed what types of activities were appropriate for observing the seventh day as a day of rest, but not which day of the week it was.
Yahushua Messiah’s obedience to the Fourth Commandment confirmed the seventh day as kept by the Jews was the correct day.
Did the Jewish people lose track of the seventh day after Yahushua Messiah’s death?
Years before the time of Yahushua Messiah’s death, and in the centuries since, the Jewish people have been widely dispersed throughout the Middle East and Europe. Wherever they have gone, they have fiercely guarded the observance of the seven-day weekly cycle so they might never break the Fourth Commandment.
It is possible to consider that isolated pockets of Jews may have lost track of the weekly cycle due to some local turmoil, but such an error would have quickly been corrected by comparing notes with the many other Jewish communities in other countries and continents—communities which had not experienced any interruption or disruption in the seven-day weekly cycle.
However, there is not any historical record of any dispute among any Jewish groups that the day we call Saturday is the seventh day of the weekly cycle, The Most High YAHUWAH’s day of rest. The Jewish people have successfully kept the original seven-day weekly cycle intact.
Now, one last question that sometimes comes up:
Did the change to the Gregorian calendar in 1582 lose track of the seventh day?
From 46 B.C. up to A.D. 1582, the Western world used what is called the Julian calendar. It was a vast improvement over the previous Roman calendars because it finally kept the months in sync with the seasons. However, after many centuries even the Julian calendar was about 10 days out of sync with the solar system.
In 1582 the old Julian calendar was replaced with the new, improved Gregorian calendar, which is the calendar system we still use today. At the time of the change to the new calendar system, those 10 days were simply dropped out of the calendar to get the dating system of the calendar back in sync with the solar system. It was Thursday, Oct. 4, 1582, and the next day, Friday, should have been Oct. 5. However, the new calendar made the next day Oct. 15 instead.
That change had no impact on the seven-day weekly cycle. Whether that following Friday was numbered as the 5th of the month or the 15th of the month, it was still the sixth day of the week, and the day that followed was still the seventh day of the week.
Even today we constantly add a day into our calendar every four years. We call it a “leap year.” Changing the number of days in a calendar month does not alter the weekly cycle—there is no six-day week, or eight-day week.
So, we can conclude confidently that our current Saturday is the seventh day of the week, on the same weekly cycle that has been in place since the beginning of creation—a cycle established and confirmed by The Most High YAHUWAH Himself.
Correspondence between Biblical numbers and astronomy
The number 7 is a recurring numerical theme in the Hebrew scriptures. The menorah‘s seven lamps on its branches correspond to the lights of the seven Classical planets: the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun (4th), Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. Hebrew mysticism recognized their great importance. Therefore, along with the four lunar phases being slightly over seven days (~7.4 days) each, the number 7 was held in very high regard. The Torah reflects this with Bereishit (Book of Genesis 1:1) being seven words and twenty-eight letters (7×4) in its original Hebrew. This is “YHWH’s signature“.
“And Aloah said, ‘Let there be lights in the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons, days, years and festivals’...the 4th day (of 7).”
In many languages, the names of the days of the week are derived from the names of the seven planets; each day was consecrated to the particular planet that ruled during the early hours of the morning. While Talmudists were familiar with the planets and their characteristics in astrology, they opposed their worship to any planet, so weekdays are not named them in Hebrew besides for the Sabbath. Instead, they are referred to by number.
The ancient Chinese called the Heavenly “Seven Governments”, which means the sun, the moon plus the five stars of gold, wood, water, fire, and earth. Coincidentally, the West also names the seven days of the week after the “seven planets”.
The meaning of the names of the five planets, one star and one moon [planetary satellite] are:
- שבתאי, Saturn
- Meaning: “the restful one,” whose name is parallel to that of the Sabbath; the Seventh-day; the day of rest. Esoterically, Shabbatai שבתאי embodies Time itself. In the midst of time’s passage, Shabbatai שבתאי remains still and silent, drawing all endeavors to a close.
- 6th Day. Tzedeq צדק, Jupiter
- Meaning: “righteousness”, as Jupiter is the embodiment of divine influx.
- 5th Day Ma’adim מאדים, Mars
- Meaning: “the red one”
- 4th Day Ḥammah חמה, the Sun
- Meaning: “the hot one”
- 3rd Day Kokhevet כוכבת, Nogah נוגה or Kokhav-Nogah כוכב נוגה, Venus
- Meanings: “the she-planet,” “the bright one,” or “the bright planet,” respectively
- 2nd Day Kokhav כוכב, Mercury
- Meaning: “the planet,” since Mercury is the Principle of planetary influence, in and of itself. The Mercurial principle is that of multipotency. It embodies our means of adaptation and represents the many facets of existence. In being deemed simply as “the planet”, Mercury is presented as a blank slate; an open-ended modality of being.
- 1st Day Levanah לבנה, the Moon
- Meaning: “the white one”
Names of weekdays
The names for the days of the week are simply the day number within the week, with Shabbat being the seventh day. In Hebrew, these names may be abbreviated using the numerical value of the Hebrew letters, for example יום א׳ (Day 1, or Yom Rishon (יום ראשון)):
- Yom Rishon – יום ראשון (abbreviated יום א׳), meaning “first day” [corresponds to Sunday]
- Yom Sheni – יום שני (abbr. יום ב׳) meaning “second day” [corresponds to Monday]
- Yom Shlishi – יום שלישי (abbr. יום ג׳) meaning “third day” [corresponds to Tuesday]
- Yom Reviʻi – יום רביעי (abbr. יום ד׳) meaning “fourth day” [corresponds to Wednesday]
- Yom Chamishi – יום חמישי (abbr. יום ה׳) = “fifth day” [corresponds to Thursday]
- Yom Shishi – יום שישי (abbr. יום ו׳) meaning “sixth day” [corresponds to Friday]
- Yom Shabbat – יום שבת (abbr. יום ש׳), or more usually, simply Shabbat – שבת meaning “rest day” [corresponds to Saturday]
The names of the days of the week are modeled on the seven days mentioned in the creation story (Genesis 1). For example, Genesis 1:8 “… And there was evening and there was morning, a second day” corresponds to Yom Sheni meaning “second day”. (However, for days 1, 6, and 7 the modern name differs slightly from the version in Genesis.)
The seventh day, Shabbat, as its Hebrew name indicates, is a day of rest in Judaism. In Talmudic Hebrew, the word Shabbat (שַׁבָּת) can also mean “week”, so that in ritual liturgy a phrase like “Yom Reviʻi beShabbat” means “the fourth day in the week”. (Genesis 1:26-31; Genesis 2:1-3).
Did Yahushua Messiah keep the seventh day Shabbat?
Yahushua Messiah Himself obeyed Torah teaching and He has emphasized its importance in this notion. “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath,” He explained to some who completely misunderstood its intent and purpose (Mark 2:27). He clarified the great underlying principle of the Sabbath day that so many have missed through the centuries: The Sabbath, far from enforcing a tiresome bondage or sanctioning a list of forbidden activities, is something The Most High YAHUWAH made for man/all mankind not just for the Jews! It was sanctified—Set Apart—when mankind was made, with The Most High YAHUWAH creating Adam and Eve on the sixth day of creation week and hence creating the Sabbath on the following day by setting that day apart.
The Disciples Kept the Sabbath mentioned 85 Times within the book of Acts There are many scriptures that verify the Sabbath day being the 7th day of the week. All throughout the ‘New testament’, the first day of the week is called “The first day of the week” and the 7th day of the week is called “The Sabbath”. This fact alone should prove when the Sabbath truly is. Click link above. http://www.eliyah.com/85times.html
Other reasons why Saturday is the true Shabbat:
Other reasons why Saturday is the true Shabbat:
1. History tell us that Catholics have opposed the Jewish Sabbath(Saturday), and believers have continuously observed Sunday since 321 A.D.
2. Historians have kept calendar records fairly faithfully;
3. A number of Christian groups/sects observed the seventh day Sabbath(Saturday) for some or all of their history. These include: the Waldensians, the Scotts, the Albigensian, the Martoma Christians in southern India; and the Abyssinians of Ethiopia. A prince of Ethiopia, who was in exile in the United States, attempted to teach his people FROM WORDS IN THEIR OWN MOTHER TONGUE, that Ethiopia had anciently observed the Sabbath (Saturday) and the Biblical Feasts.
4. According to the Dead Sea Scrolls, there was a change in the Temple from a solar calendar to a lunar calendar, but WITHOUT AFFECTING THE TIMING OF THE SEVENTH DAY SABBATH.
0ur Testimony on keeping the seventh day Shabbat with DSS Enoch Priestly Calendar:
We have been very delighted after almost 6 years we have been following the calendar only 364 days 52 Shabbat on the current 7 days a week, Shabbat on Sat-day without breaking it, yet last few years as we checked and compare with the 6 years Priestly order as to who are on duty that Shabbat, whether that Shabbat shall have a full moon or not, miraculously, it has matched all the 6 years DSS finding continuously. This means that we are keeping the same Shabbat with those Zadokite Priests as well as our Messiah in His time 2000+ years ago! Details on how to read the 6 years priestly order chart please visit our webpage:http://man-child.com/the-times-of-torah-enoch-the-order-of-malki-tzedek-2019/ and http://man-child.com/2021-2022-calendar-based-on-dds-priestly-order-6-years-calendar-excel-spreadsheet/
With YaHuWaH Priestly Calendar from DSS, the Spring Equinox falls during the last week of the old year annually, so it is not ever necessary to wait for the following Wednesday, or go back to a prior Wednesday, as that would throw everything off, including the weekday moon phases recorded by the true Zadokite priests! The Sign of the Spring Equinox, the straight line of shadows from sunrise to sunset, will occur somewhere within the 7 days OF THE EQUINOX WEEK that transits the old year [day 364] to the new one on Aviv 1!
The lunar phases confirm the year of the cycle we are in. Aviv 1 has a full moon in years 1 & 4 and again on year one of the new priestly cycle. The priestly order was based on calculation of lunar phases, not the 2nd or 3rd day of a 2–3-day full moon and NEVER BY OBSERVATION OF THE MOON.
REMEMBER JUBILEES 6 & OTHER PLACES FORBID ANY USE OF THE MOON TO DETERMINE TIME. WE FOLLOW A SOLAR ONLY CALENDAR! WE ARE MERELY SHOWING HOW THE PHASES APPEARED ON THE SAME DAY OF THE WEEK 2,000 YEARS AGO, AS THEY DO TODAY, SHOWING US THAT THE SHABBAT OF THAT DAY REMAINS THE SAME TODAY WITH THE HEATHEN NAME OF SATURDAY.
****Gregorian dates change year to year regardless of Torah patterns. Roman data-dates need to be ignored and shunned every year!
****The Torah priestly cycles NEVER CHANGE & are as follows: Years 1-4 same, Years 2-5 same, Years 3-6 same.
****If we start every year on Day 4 – Modern Wednesday every year will end on a 3rd Day-Tuesday and will be exactly 364 days as required by Torah & Enoch! For now, we only tracked and matched the DDS 6 years priestly calendar according to Enoch with only and straightly 364 days yearly with 52 “Shabbats” not weeks, and the 1st day, we only start the year on the 4th day of the first week of the new year… by doing it, we discovered that we are observing the exact same day same month and the same 6 years uninterrupted priestly order ( for example, this year 2021/2022 is the 3rd year of this priestly order circle) , hence, even though after 2000+ years between us and them, we are sharing the same calendar even with the moon position monthly with the same priest on duty every 6 years circle!!!! ( http://man-child.com/2021-2022-calendar-based-on-dds-priestly-order-6-years-calendar-excel-spreadsheet/ ) And this was supported with scripture records as well as Jewish history when they mentioned a particular priestly order was on duty at that day of that month! And because of this, we also know how to identify the sabbatical years and Jubilee years according to the scriptures. ( http://man-child.com/is-2022-or-2024-the-120th-jubilee-in-yhwh-dss-calendar/ )The numbers match perfectly! We have also tried scriptural studies on “dates” with this calendar exercise in Chinese ( http://man-child.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/GENESIS-6-8-Calendar-Noah-Flood-based-on-Enoch-DDS-364days-Counting.pdf ), the counting of days match perfectly without breaking the Shabbat year to year. We will try to describe it in English in this coming Year of YHWH! Amein.

B.5 Jubilee Accounting Chart: From Creation to New Heavens and New Earth
The current Jewish calendar had omitted a 196years from their history which will be found from the following article attached below: “is Day of Atonement, the 120th Jubilee completed on 2022 or 2024”. Hence, if we add on the missing 196 years to the current Jewish calendar 5781, this year we are at 5997years from creation. Which means 2024 should be the 6000 years for the Jewish calendar; they actually knew their calendar!? Recently 2021 Feb 22, all the “Jews’ around the world have cried out in unison with a drafted few minutes prayers for their Messiah to come; the frequencies of this prayer was to send up to open the portal of heavens. indeed, in recent months, the expectation of a world’s Messiah to be appeared on earth is very intense in various religious group. The clock is ticking, it is loud and clear! Interesting enough, the DSS recorded 6 year Priest weekly duty cycle’s calendar with the mark of the full moon on first day of Aviv every 3 years has been served as the hands of our creator’s clock, they are YHWH’s time keeper on earth corresponding to the celestial signs!
Please take note that
- the 120th jubilees according to this chart will be completed on year 5880
which is Year 2024 in our current calendar.
2. Messiah died in the middle of a week of the 70 Jubilees that been prophesied by Daniel,
the 4th sabbatical week ( the 4th day of the week, Aviv Passover Feast week of 30 AD )
The priest on duty is immer; and the first priest on duty of that year is Yeshebab: “seat of (his) father”,
It is a 5/6 Priestly circle. year 2 in the shmeetah cycle.
3. Year 70AD was Sabbatical year, the priest on duty was Miyamin, the 3rd of 6 years priestly order cycle.

Sorry for the confusing researched papers ( published articles ) throughout the years that have been “improved/changed” as our understanding shifted. For now, we only tracked and matched the DDS 6 years priestly calendar according to Enoch with only and straightly 364 days yearly with 52 “Shabbats” not weeks, and the 1st day, we only start the year on the 4th day of the first week of the new year… by doing it, we discovered that we are observing the exact same day same month and the same 6 years uninterrupted priestly order ( for example, this coming year 2021/20222 is the 3rd year of this priestly order circle) , hence, even though after 2000+ years between us and them, we are sharing the same calendar even with the moon position monthly with the same priest on duty every 6 years circle!!!! And this was supported with scripture records as well as Jewish history when they mentioned of particular priestly order was on duty at that day of that month! And because of this, we also know how to identify the sabbatical years and Jubilee years according to the scriptures. The numbers match perfectly! We have done this exercise in Chinese, will try to describe it in English for this coming new Year of YHWH! Amein.
P.S. we have been active on social media groups instead of publishing new post on this site since DEC 2019 after we have encountered multiple cyber crashes on this site!

Our First Fruit Offering to ABBA YaHuWaH in this Shavuot 2020 May 31st ： The Covenant of Mt Sinai and the promise of the releasing / raining down HIS Ruach/Spirit in this appointed time and season.🌈🙏♥️HalleluYAH
What had happened at Mt Sinai, between the feast of Shavuot, the 50 Omer count on the Yom15th of Month 3 to the 3rd Yom of Month 5, Feast of New Wine: 7X7+1 =50 Yoms count (7 weeks/shabbats) Festival?
Initial information was excerpted from the document: http://man-child.com/__trashed/ [What covenants are commemorated on Yom 15th of Month 3? From what Yom we are instructed to start the 50 omer counts in the Scriptures? ]
The below message in purple was partially quoted from the comment by Sholiach Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky on http://man-child.com/__trashed/ “Exodus 19 shows us that they arrived at Mt. Sinai on Yom 15 Month 3, Yom 15 is the same Yom they left Egypt. Three Yoms [# of new life-resurrection] of washing and preparation bring us to the 18th. The 18th back in Aviv was also the YOM OF LIFE on Shabbat MORNING before dawn when Messiah ROSE and gave us all eternal life. Both the written and The Living Torah were given in the early morning of the 18th, not at NIGHT! Messiah Yahushua also died on Aviv 15, freeing us from sin, the exact Yom we left Egypt and were set free in Aviv and also the exact Yom we arrived as a free people on Mt. Sinai the 15th!!! Only the Torah Solar calendar fits like a glove and needs no added fictional details or unreliable human eyes looking to an often unseen MOON, to justify things. To unknowingly follow the moon is to in essence be blindly led by the rabbinic anti-Messiah movement, that also rejects revelation given on Month 3 Yom 16, regarding time, rather trusting their own blind eyes! [ Jubilee1:1 And it came to pass in the first year of the exodus of the children of Yashar’al out of Egypt, in the third month, on the sixteenth Yom of the month, [2450 Anno Mundi] that YAHUWAH spoke to Mosheh, saying: ‘Come up to Me on the Mount, and I will give you two tables of stone of the Torah and of the commandment, which I have written, that you may teach them.’] The times of heaven are based on heavenly mathematics and remains so vital that it was initially given to Moses and Israel on the 16th Yom of Month 3, the Yom after arriving at Sinai and 2 Yoms before the entire Torah. Think of that! YHUH wanted to make sure that we had the time right before the feasts were renewed! All of you can stop guessing and entertaining different calendars or shall we say calendar-confusion, if we simply receive the math of heaven revealed to Moses as a revelatory gift with just a mustard seed of Emunah, needing no sightings or man’s mathematics. It is far less confusing to accept the revelation; all of it, between the 15th and 18th as our gift! “ …end

And this whole festival was celebrated in heaven from the Yom of creation till the Yoms of Noach – twenty-six jubilees and five weeks of years and Noach and his sons observed it for seven jubilees and one week of years, till the Yom of Noach’s death, and from the Yom of Noach’s death his sons did away with it until the Yoms of Abraham, and they ate blood. But Abraham observed it, and Yitzchak and Ya’akov observed it until your Yoms, and in your Yoms the children of Israel forgot it until you celebrated it anew on this mountain. (Jub.6:18-19).
Hence, from the record of our scriptures, they agreed to sign a covenant with YHWH which is different from their ancestors on the month 3 yom 15th: EXO 19:1-8 stated that it was on the month 3 yom 15th Yashar’al agreed and made a Solemn Covenant with YHWH: Exo 19:4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Mitsrites, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself. Exo 19:5 ‘And now, if you diligently obey My voice, and shall guard My covenant, then you shall be My treasured possession above all the peoples – for all the earth is Mine –Exo 19:6 ‘and you shall be to Me a reign of priests and a set-apart nation.’ Those are the words which you are to speak to the children of Yashar’al.” Exo 19:7 And Mosheh came and called for the elders of the people, and set before them all these words which יהוה commanded him. Exo 19:8 And all the people answered together and said, “All that יהוה has spoken we shall do.” So Mosheh brought back the words of the people to יהוה. 💕 On that Yom, Yashar’al accepted/committed to YAHUWAH’s proposal before going through the grand ceremony of the details of the content of the Torah being given yet! EXO 19:1In the third month after the children of Yisra’Ãl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, on this Yom (The same yom) they came to the Wilderness of Sinai
EXO 19 In the third month after the children of Yisra’Ãl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, on this Yom (The same yom) they came to the Wilderness of Sinai

After that yom of covenant onYom 15th of month 3, on the yom16th of month 3, YHWH called Mosheh to the mountain to discuss HIS detail plan of the giving and the contents of the TORAH! Exo 19:9-13 And יהוה said to Mosheh, “See, I am coming to you in the thick cloud so that the people hear when I speak with you and believe you forever.” And Mosheh reported the words of the people to יהוה. Exo 19:10 And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Go to the people and set them apart today and tomorrow. And they shall wash their garments, Exo 19:11 and shall be prepared by the third Yom. For on the third-Yom יהוה shall come down upon Mount Sinai before the eyes of all the people. etc ” The Book of Jubilee was written for this purpose, it stated that on month 3 yom 16th, after Yashar’al agreed to trust and obey YHWH whatever HE said; YHWH began to give the detail instructions of the content of TORAH to them. JUBILEES 1 YAHUWAH Call Mosheh up to the Mountain to give the account of the division of the Yoms Jubilee1:1 And it came to pass in the first year of the exodus of the children of Yasharal out of Egypt, in the third month, on the sixteenth Yom of the month, [2450 Anno Mundi] that YAHUWAH spoke to Mosheh, saying: ‘Come up to Me on the Mount, and I will give you two tables of stone of the Torah and of the commandment, which I have written, that you may teach them.‘ Jubilee was written for this purpose: This is the history of the division of the Yoms of the Torah and of the testimony, of the events of the years, of their (year) weeks, festivals of the covenant, of their Shabbats, of their Jubilees throughout all the years of the world, as YAHUWAH spoke to Mosheh on Mount Sinai when he went up to receive the tables of the Torah and of the commandment, according to the voice of YAHUWAH as HE said to him, ‘Go up to the top of the Mountain.‘http://man-child.com/moses-makes-seven-trips-up-and-down-mt-sinai/
A quote from the above article/link: ” We have discovered that scripture is knitted together by EIGHT COVENANTS YAHUWAH made through 5 men (Noah, Abraham x2, Moses x3, David, Yahushua) in an unfolding fashion, of which each of the first seven (covenants) were all parts of one covenant and each played a specific function in this first marriage (a COVENANT is a MARRIAGE UNION) between YAHUWAH and Abraham’s descendants that failed time and time again due to man’s unregenerate nature always disobedient to their covenant. A covenant has a contractual structure to it. In fact, a modern-Yom contract originates from ancient blood covenant, which is what we see take place both at Mt Sinai and 1500 years later with the death of our Savior. The ReNewed Covenant (of which also has a contractual structure) and blood shed of the Savior is directly connected to these seven trips Moses made. A CONTRACT has 4 elements:
TERMS AND CONDITIONS, including a ceremony with blood ratification
SIGNATURE (a COVENANT is signed in BLOOD)
A modern-Yom Wedding in our culture is followed by a ceremonial reception where the Bride and Bridegroom share their first COVENANT MEAL as Husband and Wife. This also is modeled after the ancient blood covenant. We will see this occur at Mt Sinai as well. The speaking of THE TEN WORDS (often translated as Ten “COMMANDMENTS”) was, and still is, the eternal marriage conditions between YAHUWAH and Abraham’s descendants, which includes those of us in Yahushua/Messiah — the WORD/TEN WORDS made flesh. This wedding Yom 3500 years ago is also known as THE YOM OF THE ASSEMBLY (also translated incorrectly as the word “church”). Now, since you and I in Yahushua/Messiah are Abraham’s descendants as were they of this first covenant arrangement, every topic and theme of scripture and the entire ReNewed Covenant must be interpreted through what happened here at the Yom of the Assembly and subsequent 100 Yoms following. (From harvest to harvest: another set of 50 Yoms from month3 yom 15th is The Feast of new wine; the third set of 50 yoms is the feast of New Oil)
Another way of understanding the event happened on Mt Sinai: the Jewish wedding 3 stages:
On the yom16th -18th of the month 3 in Yahuwah 364 yom Calendar:

Exo 24:12 And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Come up to Me on the mountain and be there, while I give you tablets of stone, and the Torah and the command which I have written, to teach them.” Exo 24:13 And Mosheh arose with his assistant Yahoshua, and Mosheh went up to the mountain of Elohim. Exo 24:14 And he said to the elders, “Wait here for us until we come back to you. And see, Aharon and Ḥur are with you. Whoever has mattered, let him go to them.” Exo 24:15 And Mosheh went up into the mountain, and a cloud covered the mountain. Exo 24:16 And the esteem of יהוה dwelt on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it for six Yoms. And on the seventh Yom, He called to Mosheh out of the midst of the cloud. Exo 24:17 And the appearance of the esteem of יהוה was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain, before the eyes of the children of Yisra’ĕl. Exo 24:18 And Mosheh went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. And it came to be that Mosheh was on the mountain forty Yoms and forty nights.

Father, all praise be to You, the Eternal YAHUWAH Aloahiym Aleph Tau, our Creator Father, and Yahushua, our Messiah Aloahiym Aleph Tau, one with the Father [John 10:30], Who has us kept us alive, sustained us, and enabled us to reach this moment in your plan for all of the eternity. Father, we know that our entire existence is a function of you alone, and that our salvation is only through Yahushua [Rev 5: 12-13], and that your love of us preceded our love for you [1 John 4:19]. We only have an existence, sustenance, and prosperity because of your love for us and your pleasure, and for no other reason [Rev 4:11]. Without an existence, we cannot give you the praise and thanks that you so richly deserve, and that is rightfully Yours. YAHUWAH, you inhabit the praises of your people, Israel [Psalm 22:3], and not our complaints [Phil 2: 14; James 3: 14-18]. We thank you, Father, for bringing forth all believers in you and of You to read this article, whereby you have revealed yourself to each and every one of us during our tenure here on the earth, to serve your purposes, and whereby the brilliance of your magnificent Light is tangibly apparent, and glowing in, around, and through each one of us [Psalm 91:1; Matt 6:22]. Even though we all have walked in times past in the darkness of Satan, according to the ways and course of this world, [Eph 2: 2], You have redeemed us for Your purposes, enabling us to witness and perceive who You are in us, and who we are in You, even allowing us to perceive the origin of our core existence (our respective spirits) as being of you (your divine Light)[1 John 1:5], and literally having our spirits with you in Shamayim [Eph 2:6] as joint heirs with Yahushua, the one and only Messiah [Rom 8:17; John 14:6], so as to accomplish Your perfect will (YAHUWAH’S Perfect Will = YAHUWAH’S pure, perfect divine Light) in and for each one of us [Eph 2:10]. You and you alone provide us with what we are in need of [Phil 4:19], and what we desire [Psalm 23:1]. Father, we ask that you Baruch each and every reader of this article by consuming our respective spirits, souls, and bodies, and manifesting your perfect, divine Light tangibly and recognizably as coming only from You as the sole, exclusive and Sovereign source [Isa 43:11, 15; 44:6; others], such that each person receive, ponder, and decisively act on this message as you have delivered it to me, and that each reader hereof would clearly and tangibly experience the explosion of your perfect, divine Light as the Perfect Gift of James 1:17 (active motion/movement = demonstration of power of the Ruach ha Qodesh), according to Your perfect will for each of us, in the manner in which you have revealed it here. We thank you, Father, for answered prayer. Amein. Shalom,
Eyd and Yahn EL Stephenson
Turn us again, O Elohym, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved. ~ Psalms 80:3
Original article can be found on www.withoneaccord.org By Dr. William and Mary Schnoebelen.
Prayer changes us profoundly. As we seek to know Abba Father through our Saviour Yahushua – we are changed. Like a child we rest in Him. Allow Him access to all those forgotten, wounded and murky places so well guarded… until that time when His Set Apart Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh)turns us again, and brings His fire and Light to wash us with the Living Waters of redemption. It’s so miraculous, the transformation that takes place!
We are forever changed. Our spirits transformed in one glorious, eternal moment. This spiritual growth is promised to us and expressed both explicitly and with metaphor throughout Scripture! Our spiritual armour becomes more perfect in Yahushua, our hearts are strengthened. We step deeper into relationship with Him and He shows us, through His Presence and His Word, the awesomeness of Yahuwah. But inevitably, struggles come to test us (many times through family and friends!), and we realize there is SO MUCH MORE we need to learn. Because HE IS SO MUCH MORE. So, how do we fulfill our destinies and move deeper into relationship with Him?
COMPASSION & THANKFULNESS.
And he took the seven loaves and the fishes, and gave thanks, and brake them, and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. Mt 15:36
The feeding of the multitudes strikes a chord in my heart. For me, the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 15, is incredibly touching…because Yahushua Messiah, King of the Universe, demonstrates His profound love for starving souls AND for the Father by giving thanks – even when there was little to share. While it is true this passage has volumes more to teach us, let me just say that it is Yahushua’s love and compassion that brings all these lessons together.
But consider this: After He healed, delivered, preached and journeyed, yet before His great miracle of feeding the thousands…He prayed and gave thanks. Thanks for what and WHO was there, waiting to be transformed in that dry arid place; He saw a miraculous, nourishing food for thousands of people seeking His truths, His Presence, spring to life before the Throne before there was earthly evidence. Seeing the situation with His eternal vision, He knew what would come. He trusted the Father. He had trust in HIM. And so we must follow His lead.
It’s true most of the world is consumed with greed. But there is so much suffering and need, too – this is a difficult lesson for our hearts to comprehend. But Yahushua will reveal His plans when we ask for HIS compassion – and we begin to feel and know His love for His children…that’s when thankfulness can bring us into His Presence with praise! Burdens are lifted, and nothing really matters but Him. It’s all about Him. This is where MIRACLES are forged in the Fire!
This was a revelation for me some years ago during a very difficult time in my life, when I was poor, single, isolated and facing tremendous persecution for my faith in the workplace. BUT YAHUWAH! I remember how one weekend as I cried out to Him, devastated by an especially brutal week…Then, HE spoke to me and showed me the pain and suffering of my tormentors. Devils ruled over them. I began to see the situation through His eyes more clearly, and an anointing fell on me to pray for their deliverance and salvations in new, powerful ways. The strongholds of the enemy began to fall; Confusion blanketed their camp. My co-workers had no experience to measure against this kind of unrelenting, joyful compassion that was not mine – but His. They didn’t have a clue how to deal with it. He turned me again supernaturally, and many were infuriated by my joyful countenance! They wanted me sad and angry, like they were! But THANKFULLY, a few precious souls saw the compassion and were forever changed when I spoke to them of Yahushua, and this blessing ignited such passion within me for our King that I would never see abuse, hate and selfishness the same way again. I found a deeper understanding of His love for those who called me their enemy:
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, baruch them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; ~ Mt 5:44
Dear Ones, your witness at home and in the workplace, at the gym, during your travels…just might change someone’s eternity! The need is great but the laborers are few…every time we encounter another soul it can make a HUGE difference. THANKFULLY, some are willing to intercede and make sacrificial gifts for His Kingdom to ‘feed the multitudes.’ We are so thankful for each and every prayer you pray for With One Accord Ministries and for us!
Thankful for your notes of appreciation, love and support. Thankful for every dime we receive that keeps the ministries of WOAM going! Some days we find ourselves with only small morsels to share…BUT YAHUWAH! With His compassion and the power of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) those baskets are miraculously filled – and the lives of hundreds and even thousands are touched with Yahushua’s deliverance and healing. One soul at a time. HALLELUYAH!
As you stand with us as intercessors and prayer warriors against the tide of humanism and outright evil flourishing today, we THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR BROTHERS & SISTERS IN YAHUSHUA! You are holding us up when the spiritual warfare is at its worst and our finances at the breaking point. We love you so much in Messiah Dear Friends!
You, our Friends & Partners, make all we do possible. THANK YOU! May Yahushua baruch you all during this festive Season of Lights… And please, we ask that you pray and financially support us so together, we can do His Work! Some day in that great heaven we will see and know the profound eternities Abba worked through our submission to His commandments – His compassion and His baruched Ruach haQodesh. Shalom!
YAHUWAH baruch thee, and keep thee: YAHUWAH make his face shine upon thee, and have favor/be gracious unto thee: YAHUWAH lift up his countenance upon thee,?and give thee shalom. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will baruch them. ~ Num 6:24-27
Prayer for Yahuwah’s Dimensional Deliverance
Through Emunah/believe we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of Yahuwah, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. ~ Hebrews 11:3
Originally, Ruach gave this prayer to us as a means of Dimensional Deliverance from Rituals and satanic attack. But thrust into several horrendous spiritual battles during October 2014, Ruach led us to begin praying a variation of the prayer for difficult and demon-filled situations AND people. It has had huge impact on everything from schisms caused by actual abuse, to satanic attack, to spiritual or phantom/dream events such as fallen angelic rape.
This is the original prayer which had huge positive impacts for satanic ritual abuse victims. THIS IS A WEAPON OF SPIRITUAL WARFARE!

Yahuwah abides in all time and dimensions (the basis of repentance/ Teshuvah), and He is the author and finisher of our faith through His Word! Hence, this prayer can be prayed for events of the past, present and future (to implore for His Mercy and for Him to change outcomes before an evil act is even committed). REMEMBER: We are ASKING YAHUWAH to do these things for us as His Set- Apart children – because only HE abides eternally and is able to move freely within and without the dimensions. He created them, us, and all our spiritual being to one day abide WITH HIM and His Son, Yahushua the Messiah. This is a serious spiritual warfare prayer Ruach haQodesh wants us to share with YOU:
Abba Father, You are the Creator of all Times, Worlds and Dimensions. By You all things were made that were made. In the Name of Yahushua ha Mossiach Your Son, Yahuwah come in the flesh, I ask You to change all evil intent forged against me throughout all time, space and dimensions.
Please Father, remove any and all of the enemies’ power to manipulate, control, violate or corrupt me (or name others) and destroy our lives and/or loved ones through violation in any time or dimension! I especially pray for protection, anointing, and deliverance from defilement in my/our[Name SPECIFIC or GENERAL areas such as sleep, dreams, patterns or ways of thinking, bodies, spiritual gifts, home, job site, travels, etc.] by the destroyer, ha satan, his minions and all enemies of YAHUWAH.
Please Abba Yahuwah, In Yahushua’s Name, have mercy on us and change where the Dimensions join together right down into our physical brains and bodies, souls and spirits, according to YOUR Righteousness! Change me, all those named, and these places and times, timelines, times and seasons concerning our lives into something for your Kabod (glory)! Annihilate the enemies’ plans and let your mighty Malakim (angels) raise their swords and shields to vanquish them. Make them to fall into the pit they devised for us! Abba, if any human beings are involved in these defilements and cursings, please let them be saved, redeemed and transformed by the Name and the Blood of Yahushua Messiah! Please Abba Yahuwah, transform us all through Your Set Apart Dabar (WORD of) Yahuwah, and Yahushua’s Blood, Resurrection, Ascension and Second Coming into Your sanctified, set apart, Ruach-filled children; Forgive us for any sins we might have committed that give the enemy opportunity, and please change all evil outcomes of unrighteousness intent or actions, words or cursings made by others or by me, both willingly and unwillingly – into an everlasting Praise for You, a blessing for us and for Your people.
I PRAY that all these Times and Dimensions, known and unknown, be turned again toward You and Your Living Torah – and ask You, YAHUWAH, to send Your KADOSH (holy) Light and the FIRE of Ruach HaKodesh through us all. Please! Send YOUR DABAR YAHUWAH (WORD) through any dark CIRCUMSTANCES and PLACES, and turn them into what You want them to be for Your Purposes.
Finally Abba Father, please seal off anything evil or religious coming against us according to Your Merciful Will. Surround us with Your Name, YAHUWAH – and the Name of Your Divine Word COME IN THE FLESH, YAHUSHUA, from In the Beginning and for all Time. Set us Apart to the eternal Kabod (glory) of Your Ineffable Name – YAHUWAH – and please write Your Name upon our foreheads and in our hearts forever – equip us to serve you in every aspect of our lives! In Yahushua ha Mossiach’s Precious Name we pray, OMAYN!

DIMENSIONAL DELIVERANCE for more in-depth information and teaching on this advanced Spiritual Warfare Weaponry!
This Olivet Discourse Deception study is about the time of Great Tribulation that Messiah described in Matthew 24.
Note: There are several different times of ‘great tribulation‘ that are defined in the New Testament; which do not point to the same period of time.
One was fulfilled when Satan used the Roman Empire to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints.
Another was fulfilled during the 1,260 years of the reign of the antichrist Popes of Rome, from 538-1798 A.D.; when they killed over 50 million saints. Read 1,260 Years Of Great Tribulation
The other one will be covered on this study.
The proper context of the Olivet Discourse is not the end times, but rather about Messiah’s proclamation that the temple in Jerusalem would be destroyed.
The disciples understood the prophecy in Daniel 9, and they were inquiring about when Messiah would cause the temple and city to be destroyed, thus ending the latter days of the Jews, who Messiah had just berated in Matthew 23.
Matthew is the only one who wrote about the ‘end of the world’, Luke and Mark did not. It should be rendered as ‘age‘, as it points to the latter days of the Jews, from when they were released from Babylon, until the temple was destroyed in 70 A.D.
Daniel 9:26 warned the Jews that the temple and city would be desolated. Daniel understood this to mean that because the Jews would deliver the Messiah up to be killed, they would be desolated. This is why Daniel was so distraught.
“and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”
In Matthew 24:20-22, Messiah warned about the coming time of Great Tribulation, which Daniel had foretold:
“And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.“
Note: The command for the saints to flee Judea is very specific to the saints in the first century, and can’t apply to saints in the end times where there is no Judea. Praying that their flight would not be on the Sabbath applies to the first century, when the Jewish leaders would have closed the city gates and prohibited them from walking out of the city; which does not apply to the end times.
Then in Matthew 24:34 Messiah told us that all of the things that He just proclaimed would be fulfilled in that generation:
“Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
Some people dismiss His words by saying that He was not referring to that generation, but His words to the Jews of His day reveal that He was indeed talking about them:
For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation. Luke 11:30
But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. Luke 17:25
From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Luke 11:51
Because people don’t understand the terrible calamity that happened to the Jews in the first century, they assign the fulfillment to the end times.
But as you will see, this was an intense time of suffering for the Jews, who had rejected the Messiah. When Messiah was being led to be crucified, He said:
“But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.” Luke 23:28
Note Luke’s explanation:
“For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” Luke 21:22
The days of vengeance are from Elohim against the apostate Jews, not some end times antichrist.
Judgment had been threatened by almost all the prophets against that wicked city. They had spoken of its crimes and threatened its ruin. Once Elohim had destroyed Jerusalem and carried the people to Babylon; but their crimes had been repeated when they returned, and Elohim had again threatened their ruin. Particularly was this very destruction foretold by Daniel, in Daniel 9:26-27.
Note Luke’s explanation:
“But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” Luke 21:23-24
This clearly shows that Luke anticipated a fulfillment in terms of Jerusalem only — the final Diaspora, and the trodding down of Jerusalem by the Gentiles.
The word gentiles is speaking of the Romans, who were being used to fulfill prophecy about the desolation of the temple, city and Jews.
So let’s take Messiah at His word and see how in fact His words were fulfilled, when the people of the prince, the Roman army, invaded Judea to desolate the temple, the city of Jerusalem, and the Jewish people.
Most Christians severely underestimate the desolation of the Jews in the first century, not understanding how Messiah caused the Roman army to cause calamity unlike any other time in history.
Notice that it says “nor ever shall be“. If this time of Great Tribulation was in fact fulfilled in the last days before Messiah returned, then there would be no more time to have another time of great tribulation; and Messiah’s explanation does not make sense.
Instead the tribulation of 70 A.D., would be followed by other times of tribulation, which fits Messiah’s explanation.
This lines up perfectly with Daniel 12:1, “And there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, Even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, Every one who is found written in the book.”
The punishment, which was then about to fall upon the city and people, was to be of an exhaustive character. His words utterly forbid the idea of another and more severe national calamity reserved for a future day. (PM)
Here is a summary of what happened, as documented by Jewish historian Josephus:
On the way through Judea to Jerusalem, the Roman army killed Jews by the 10 thousands in the outlying cities. They invaded Judea from the north, marching along the coast, and killing many – 18,000 at Askelon alone.
The Roman army surrounded Jerusalem, cutting off the food supply. Warring factions inside the city destroyed the granaries. This led to a severe famine, killing many. Josephus records that the famine widened its progress and devoured the people by whole houses and families. The upper rooms were full of women and children dying by famine; and the lanes of the city were full of the dead bodies of the aged.
People killed each other as they fought over food. The most horrible and unbelievable torments were inflicted upon all who were suspected of having any food concealed.
The city was divided against itself with rival groups. The most violent party in the city was the Zealots. These called to their aid a band of blood thirsty Idumeans, who set upon the people who were peaceably inclined, and slaughtered young and old until the outer temple was all of it overflowed with blood, and that day they saw 8500 dead bodies there.
But as for the seditious bands themselves, they fought against each other while trampling upon the dead bodies which lay heaped one upon another, and being filled with a mad rage from those dead bodies under their feet, they became the more fierce. They, moreover, were still inventing pernicious things against each other; and when they had resolved upon anything, they executed it without mercy, and omitted no method of torment or of barbarity.
Josephus also tells of the terrible torments inflicted upon nobles and citizens of the better sort who refused to comply with the demands of the Zealots. Those, after being horribly tortured, were slain, and through fear, none dared bury them. In this way 12,000 of the more eminent inhabitants perished.
The noise of those that were fighting was incessant, both by day and by night; but the lamentations of those that mourned exceeded the noise of the fighting.
The dead bodies were not taken outside the city and buried, for fear of being killed, so they stacked up around the city. The blood of all sort of dead carcases stood in lakes in the holy courts themselves.
Pestilence from unclean conditions caused diseases and death.
One man, with the consent of his family, killed his parents, his children, his wife and himself; to save themselves from a worse fate.
A woman, eminent for her family and her wealth, who, while suffering the ravages of famine, slew her infant son and roasted him, and having eaten half of him, concealed the other half.
Because the food supply was cut off by the Romans, Jews out of desperation would sneak out of the city walls at night to find food. They were captured, tortured and crucified by the Roman army. At one point 500 a night were being crucified on the trees around the city, so that all of the trees had multiple bodies on them. And these bodies were not taken down, but left up there to rot and be eaten by birds and animals.
In 70 A.D. when the people of the prince, the Roman army flooded into Jerusalem, they killed the remaining Jews with the sword, trampling over dead bodies.
Birds, dogs and wild animals, ate the flesh of the fallen.
15,000 fugitive Jews were killed by the Romans, and the number of those that were forced to leap into the Jordan was prodigious. The whole country through which they fled was filled with slaughter, and Jordan could not be passed over, by reason of the dead bodies that were in it.
97,000 were taken captive and sold cheaply to places like Egypt, as if back into bondage.
At the end of the siege in 70 A.D., there were 1.1. million dead Jews, none of which were buried.
Their bodies were stacked in the city and fallen in the temple. Their bodies filled all of the trees outside the city. Blood no doubt was everywhere. Wild animals and birds of prey feasted on the dead bodies. The scene and stench had to be intense, unlike anything ever seen before or after.
Of this period of great tribulation Jewish historian Josephus says, in the introduction of his ‘Wars of the Jews‘ historical documentary.
“It had come to pass that our city Jerusalem had arrived at a higher degree of felicity than any other city under the Roman government, and yet at last fell into the sorest of calamities again. Accordingly it appears to me that the misfortunes of all men from the beginning of the world, if they be compared to those of the Jews, are not so considerable as they were.”
The sufferings of the Jews had this peculiar characteristic, namely, that they were mostly inflicted upon themselves by the warring factions within the city, concerning whom Josephus says in another place:
“It is impossible to go distinctly over every instance of these men’s iniquity. I shall, therefore, speak my mind here at once briefly: That neither did any other city ever suffer such miseries, nor did any age ever breed a generation more fruitful in wickedness than this was, from the beginning of the world” (Wars V. 10:5).
Messiah had warned about the bloodshed that would come on this generation.
“And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” Luke 21:24
This fulfilled the Parable of the Wicked Vinedressers, when the wicked tenants killed the son of the vineyard owner.
“But when the vinedressers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.’ So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and destroy those vinedressers and give the vineyard to others.” Luke 20:14-15
This fulfilled Messiah’s words of Woe to the scribes and the Pharisees.
“Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city, that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.” Matthew 23:34-36
Recall what the Jewish leaders said when they handed Messiah over to be crucified:
“And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.” Matthew 27:25
As so it was, as the Roman army flooded into the city and killed 100’s of thousands of Jews by the sword. And those who were captured were sold into slavery.
Titus wanted to save the temple, but the Roman soldiers were so enraged at the wicked Jews, that they tore it down brick by brick, to be able to capture all of the gold.
This fulfilled Messiah’s words in Matthew 24:1-2, “Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
Video: Rome and Jerusalem at War – The destruction of the Jewish Temple
The following information is from Philip Mauro’s well-documented work, ‘The Seventy Weeks and the Great Tribulation – A Study of the Last Two Visions of Daniel, and of the Olivet Discourse of the Lord Jesus Christ.’
The Jewish historian Josephus devotes nearly two hundred large pages (they would fill upwards of four hundred ordinary size) to the account of the events of’ those ‘days of vengeance’.
We can refer to but a very few of those tragic events; but, inasmuch as not many of our readers have access to the history of Josephus, we believe we are rendering them a service in giving the best idea we can, in small compass, of the happenings of those times.
After the retreat of Roman army leader Cestius, there was a slaughter of about 10,000 Jews at Damascus; and then, it being evident that war with the Romans was inevitable, the Jews began making preparations to defend Jerusalem.
At that time Josephus, the writer of this history, was appointed general of the armies in Galilee. He seems to have had great ability and success as a soldier, though he was finally overpowered and captured by the Romans. Concerning one of his military operations his translator says’ I cannot but think this stratagem of Josephus to be one of the finest that ever was invented and executed by any warrior whatsoever.
At this point the emperor Nero appointed Vespasian, a valiant and experienced general, to the task of subduing the Jews; and Vespasian designated his son Titus to assist him. They invaded Judea from the north, marching along the coast, and killing many–18,000 at Askelon alone. Thus Galilee was all over filled with fire and blood; nor was it exempt from any kind of misery or calamity (III 4:1).
The incidents of this siege were terrible; and among them were events which forcibly recall the Lord’s words, But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days. The Romans were so enraged by the long and fierce resistance of the Jews that they spared none, nor pitied any. Many, moreover, in desperation, killed themselves.
The life of Josephus was spared in a manner which seems miraculous (III 8:4-7), and he was taken captive to Vespasian, to whom he prophesied that both he and Titus his son would be Caesar and emperor.
Josephus was with Titus during the subsequent siege of Jerusalem, in which the atrocities and miseries reached a limit impossible to be exceeded on earth. Only the state of the lost in hell could be worse.
After Jotapata fell, Joppa was taken, and then Tiberias and Taricheae on Lake Gennesaret. Thousands were killed, and upwards of 30,000 from the last named place alone were sold into slavery. Having now completely subdued Galilee, Vespasian led his army to Jerusalem.
For a right understanding of Matthew 24:15-21 it is important to know that the Roman armies were, for more than a year, occupied with the devastation of the provinces of Galilee and Judea, before Jerusalem was besieged. It should be noted also that Christ’s first warnings to flee were to them which be in Judea (#Mt24:16).
This makes it perfectly certain that the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, which was the appointed signal for them which be in Judea to flee into the mountains, was not an idol set up in the inner sanctuary of the Temple. For the desolation of Judea was completed long before Jerusalem and the Temple were taken.
At the time Vespasian led his armies to Jerusalem, that doomed city was in a state of indescribable disorder and confusion insomuch that, during the entire siege, the Jews suffered far more from one another inside the walls than from the enemy outside.
Josephus says there were disorders and civil war in every city, and all those that were at quiet from the Romans turned their hands one against another. There was also a bitter contest between those that were for war, and those that were desirous for peace (IV 3:2).
Josephus further tells of the utter disgrace and ruin of the high priesthood, the basest of men being exalted to that office; and also of the profanation of the sanctuary.
The most violent party in the city was the Zealots. These called to their aid a band of blood thirsty Idumeans, who set upon the people who were peaceably inclined, and slaughtered young and old until the outer temple was all of it overflowed with blood, and that day they saw 8500 dead bodies there.
Among the slain was Ananias, formerly high priest, a venerable and worthy man, concerning whom Josephus said:
“I should not mistake if I said that the death of Ananias was the beginning of the destruction of the city, and that from this very day may be dated the overthrow of her wall, and the ruin of her affairs; that being the day whereon they saw their high priest, and the procurer of their preservation, slain in the midst of their city. * * *
And I cannot but think it was because God had doomed this city to destruction, as a polluted city, and was resolved to purge His sanctuary with fire, that He cut off these, their great defenders, while those that a little before had worn the sacred garments and presided over the public worship, were cast out naked to be the food of dogs and wild beasts.
Now after these were slain the Zealots and the Idumeans fell upon the people as upon a flock of profane animals, and cut their throats.”
Josephus also tells of the terrible torments inflicted upon nobles and citizens of the better sort who refused to comply with the demands of the Zealots. Those, after being horribly tortured, were slain, and through fear, none dared bury them. In this way 12,000 of the more eminent inhabitants perished (IV 5:3). We quote further:
“Along all the roads also vast numbers of dead bodies lay in heaps; and many who at first were zealous to desert the city chose rather to perish there; for the hopes of burial made death m their own city appear less terrible to them. But those zealots came at last to that degree of barbarity as not to bestow a burial either on those slain in the city or on those that lay along the roads; as if at the same time that they defiled men with their wicked actions they would pollute the Deity itself also, they left the dead bodies to putrefy under the sun. (IV. 6. 3).
About this time above 15,000 fugitive Jews were killed by the Romans, and the number of those that were forced to leap into the Jordan was prodigious. The whole country through which they fled was filled with slaughter, and Jordan could not be passed over, by reason of the dead bodies that were in it (IV. 8. 5, 6).
VESPASIAN RECALLED. TITUS PLACED IN CHARGE
At this point Vespasian was called to Rome by reason of the death of the emperor Nero, and the operations against the Jews devolved upon Titus. Vespasian himself was soon thereafter made emperor.
Meanwhile another tyrant rose up, whose name was Simon, and of him Josephus says: Now this Simon, who was without the wall, was a greater terror to the people than the Romans themselves; while the Zealots who were within it were more heavy upon them than both the other.
Those Zealots were led by a tyrant named John; and the excesses of murder and uncleanness in which they habitually indulged are indescribable (see Bk. IV, ch. 9, sec. 10).
In order to overthrow John, the people finally admitted Simon and his followers. From that time onward the civil warfare within the city became more incessant and deadly. The distracted city was now divided into three factions instead of two.
The fighting was carried even into the inner court of the temple; whereupon Josephus laments that even those who came with sacrifices to offer them in the temple were slain, and sprinkled that altar with their own blood, till the dead bodies of strangers were mingled together with those of their own country, and those of profane persons with those of priests, and the blood of all sort of dead carcases stood in lakes in the holy courts themselves (V 1:3).
Surely there never were such conditions as these in any city before or since.
Among the dire calamities which befell the wretched people was the destruction of the granaries and storehouses of food;so that famine was soon added to the other horrors. The warring factions were agreed in nothing but to kill those that were innocent. Says Josephus:
“The noise of those that were fighting was incessant, both by day and by night; but the lamentations of those that mourned exceeded the noise of the fighting. Nor was there ever any occasion for them to leave off their lamentations, because their calamities came perpetually, one upon another.
But as for the seditious bands themselves, they fought against each other while trampling upon the dead bodies which lay heaped one upon another, and being filled with a mad rage from those dead bodies under their feet, they became the more fierce. They, moreover, were still inventing pernicious things against each other; and when they had resolved upon anything, they executed it without mercy, and omitted no method of torment or of barbarity” (V. 2. 5).
At the time described in the preceding paragraphs, the Roman armies had not yet reached the city, and inasmuch as the Passover season now came on, and things seemed to quiet down momentarily, the gates were opened for such as wished to observe the great feast. The translator, in a footnote, says:
“Here we see the true occasion of those vast numbers of Jews that were in Jerusalem during this siege by Titus and who perished therein. For the siege began at the feast of Passover, when such prodigious multitudes of the Jews and proselytes were come from all parts of Judea, and from other countries.
As to the number that perished during this siege, Josephus assures us, as we shall see hereafter, they were 1,100,000, besides 97,000 captives.
This is notable as the last Passover. That joyous feast of remembrance of God’s great deliverance of His people out of Egypt ended in an orgy of blood.
The tyrant John took advantage of this opportunity to introduce some of his followers, with concealed weapons, among the throngs of worshipers in the temple, who slew many, while others were rolled in heaps together, and trampled upon, and beaten without mercy.
And now, though the Roman armies were at their gates, the warring factions began again to destroy one another and the innocent inhabitants.
“For”, says Josephus, they returned to their former madness, and separated one from another, and fought it out; and they did everything that the besiegers could desire them to do. For they never suffered from the Romans anything worse than they made each other suffer; nor was there any misery endured by the city which, after what these men did, could be esteemed new. It was most of all unhappy before it was overthrown; and those that took it did it a kindness. For I venture to say that the sedition destroyed the city, and the Romans destroyed the sedition. This was a much harder thing to do than to destroy the walls. So that we may justly ascribe our misfortunes to our own people (V. 6. 2).
This is the most astonishing feature of this great tribulation; for surely there never was a besieged city whose inhabitants suffered more from one another than from the common enemy. In this feature of the case we see most clearly that it is one of judgment; and that, as the apostle Paul said, the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.
At this point the siege began in earnest. Titus, however, sent Josephus to speak to the Jews, offering them clemency, and exhorting them to yield. Josephus made a most earnest plea to them not to resist the might of Rome, pointing out that God was no longer with them.
But it was to no purpose. So the siege proceeded outside, and the famine began to rage inside, insomuch that children pulled out of their parents’ mouths the morsels they were eating, and even mothers deprived their infants of the last bits of food that might have sustained their lives.
The fighters, of course, kept for their own use what food there was, and it seems that they took a keen delight in seeing others suffer. It was a species of madness. They invented terrible methods of torments, such as it would not be seemly for us to describe. And this was done, says Josephus, to keep their madness in exercise (V 10:3).
The most horrible and unbelievable torments were inflicted upon all who were suspected of having any food concealed. The following passage will give an idea of the conditions:
“It is impossible to give every instance of the iniquity of these men. I shall therefore speak my mind here at once briefly:–that neither did any other city suffer such miseries, nor did any age ever breed a generation more fruitful in wickedness than this was, from the beginning of the world. (This forcibly brings to mind the Lord’s own words.) Finally they brought the Hebrew nation into contempt, that they might themselves appear comparatively less impious with regard to strangers. They confessed, what was true, that they were the scum, and the spurious and abortive offspring of our nation, while they overthrew the city themselves, and forced the Romans, whether they would or no, to gain a melancholy reputation by acting gloriously against them; and did almost draw that fire upon the temple which they seemed to think came too slowly” (V. 10. 5).
Under pressure of the famine many Jews went out at night into the valleys in search of food.
These were caught, tortured and crucified in sight of those on the walls of the city. About five hundred every day were thus treated. The number became finally so great that there was not room enough for the crosses, nor crosses enough for the victims. So several were ofttimes nailed to one cross.
A little later the Roman armies encompassed the entire city, so that there was no longer any egress therefrom.
“Then, says Josephus, did the famine widen its progress and devour the people by whole houses and families. The upper rooms were full of women and children dying by famine; and the lanes of the city were full of the dead bodies of the aged. The children also and the young men wandered about the marketplaces like shadows, all swelled with the famine, and fell down dead, wheresoever their misery seized them (V. 12. 3).
Thus did the miseries of Jerusalem grow worse and worse every day.
And indeed the multitude of carcases that lay in heaps, one upon another, was a horrible sight, and produced a pestilential stench which was a hindrance to those that would make sallies out of the city and fight the enemy (VI. 1. 1).
The number of those that perished by famine in the city was prodigious, and their miseries were unspeakable. For if so much as the shadow of any kind of food did anywhere appear, a war was commenced presently, and the dearest friends fell a fighting one another about it.
In this connection Josephus relates in detail the case of a woman, eminent for her family and her wealth, who, while suffering the ravages of famine, slew her infant son and roasted him, and having eaten half of him, concealed the other half.
When presently the seditious Jews came in to search the premises, and smelt the horrid scent of this food, they threatened her life if she did not show them what food she had prepared. She replied that she had saved for them a choice part, and withal uncovered what was left of the little body, saying, Come, eat of this food; for I have eaten of it myself. Do not you pretend to be more tender than a woman, or more compassionate than a mother. Even those desperate and hardened men were horrified at the sight, and stood aghast at the deed of this mother. They left trembling; and the whole city was full of what the woman had done. It must be remembered that all this time the lives of all in the city would have been spared and the city and temple saved, had they but yielded to the Romans. But how then should the Scripture be fulfilled? (see #De 28:56,57)
Soon after this the temple was set on fire and was burned down, though Titus tried to save it. Josephus says:
But as for that house, God had for certain long ago doomed it to the fire; and now that fatal day was come, according to the revolution of ages. It was the tenth day of the month Ab, the day upon which it was formerly burnt by the king of Babylon (VI. 4. 5).
Further Josephus says:
“While the holy house was on fire everything was plundered that came to hand, and ten thousand of those were slain. Nor was there commiseration of any age, or any reverence of gravity; but children, old men, profane persons, and priests were all slain in the same manner.
Moreover many, when they saw the fire, exerted their utmost strength, and did break out into groans and outcries. Perea also did return the echo, as well as the mountains round about Jerusalem, and augmented the force of the noise.”
Yet was the misery itself more terrible than this disorder. For one would have thought that the hill itself, on which the temple stood, was seething hot, as if full of fire on every part, that the blood was more in quantity than the fire, and that the slain were more in numbers than they who slew them. For the ground did nowhere appear visible because of the dead bodies that lay upon it (VL 5. 1).
In describing how a number were killed in a certain cloister, which the soldiers set on fire, Josephus says:
“A false prophet was the occasion of the destruction of those people, he having made a public proclamation that very day that God commanded them to get upon the temple and that they should receive miraculous signs of their deliverance. There was then a large number of false prophets suborned by the tyrants to impose on the people, who announced to them that they should wait for deliverance from God (VI. 5. 2).
In this detail also the Lord’s Olivet prophecy was most literally fulfilled.
When at last the Romans gained entrance into the city, the soldiers had become so exasperated by the stubborn resistance of the Jews, that they could not be restrained from wreaking vengeance upon the survivors.
So they indulged in slaughter until weary of it. The survivors were sold into slavery, but at a very low price, because they were so numerous, and the buyers were few. Thus was fulfilled the word of the Lord by Moses, And there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you (#De 28:68).
Many were put into bonds and sold to slavery in the Egyptian mines, thus fulfilling several prophecies that they should be sold into Egypt again, whence God had delivered them (#Ho 8:13; 9:3).
This fulfills Luke 21:24, “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations.”
In concluding this part of his history Josephus gives the number of those who perished (a million one hundred thousand) and of those sold into slavery (ninety seven thousand), and explains, as we have already stated, that they were come up from all the country to the feast of unleavened bread, and were on a sudden shut up by an army. And he adds:
“Now this vast multitude was indeed collected out of remote places, but the entire nation was now shut up by fate as in prison, and the Roman army encompassed the city when it was crowded with inhabitants. Accordingly the multitude of those that perished therein exceeded all the destruction’s that either men or God ever brought upon the world” (VI. 9. 4).
Thus ended, in the greatest of all calamities of the sort, the national existence of the Jewish people, and all that pertained to that old covenant which was instituted with glory (2 Corinithians 3:7,9,11), but which was to be done away.
Here may be seen an example of the thoroughness of God’s judgments, when He arises to do His strange work. Judgment must begin at the house of God; and in view of what is brought to our notice in this history of Josephus, how impressive is the question, And if it begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17).
Commentaries on the Abomination of Desolation of Matthew 24:15:
Alfred Edersheim – Life And Times Of Jesus The Messiah
This, together with tribulation to Israel, unparalleled in the terrible past of its history, and unequalled even in its bloody future was about to befall them. Nay, so dreadful would be the persecution that, if Divine mercy had not interposed for the sake of the followers of Christ, the whole Jewish race that inhabited the land would have been swept away. There should have been no flesh saved.
The Jews impiously said, concerning the death of Christ, “His blood be on us, and on our children.” Never did any other people invoke such an awful curse upon themselves, and upon no other nation did such a judgment ever fall. We read of Jews crucified till there was no more wood for making crosses;
Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible:
There shall be great tribulation. The word tribulation means calamity, or suffering. Lu 21:24 has specified in what this tribulation should consist. “They shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations; and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles shall be fulfilled.” That is, until the time allotted for the Gentiles to do it shall be fully accomplished; or as long as God is pleased to suffer them to do it.
The first thing mentioned by Luke is, that they should fall by the edge of the sword. That is, should be slain in war, as the sword was then principally used in war. This was most strikingly fulfilled. Josephus, in describing it, uses almost the very words of our Saviour. All the calamities, says he, which had befallen any nation from the beginning of the world, were but small in comparison with those of the Jews. Jewish Wars, book i., preface, 4.
He has given the following account of one part of the massacre when the city was taken: “And now rushing into the city, they slew whomsoever they found, without distinction, and burnt the houses and all the people who had fled into them. And when they entered for the sake of plunder, they found whole families of dead persons, and houses full of carcasses destroyed by famine; then they came out with their hands empty. And though they thus pitied the dead, they had not the same emotion for the living, but killed all they met, whereby they filled the lanes with dead bodies. The whole city ran with blood, insomuch that many things which were burning were extinguished by the blood.” Jewish Wars, book vi. chap. 8, 5; chap. 9, 2, 3. He adds, that in the siege of Jerusalem, not fewer than eleven hundred thousand perished (Jewish Wars, book vi., chap. 9, 3)–a number almost as great as are in the whole city of London. In the adjacent provinces no fewer than two hundred and fifty thousand are reckoned to have been slain; making in all whose deaths were ascertained, the almost incredible number of one million three hundred and fifty thousand, who were put to death. These were not indeed all slain with the sword. Many were crucified. “Many hundreds,” says he, (Jewish Wars, book vi. Chap. xi Chap. xi. 1) “were first whipped, then tormented with various kinds of tortures, and finally crucified: the Roman soldiers nailing them (out of the wrath and hatred they bore to the Jews) one after one way, and another after another, to crosses, by way of jest, until at length the multitude became so great that room was wanting for crosses, and crosses for the bodies.” So terribly was their imprecation fulfilled–” His blood be on us, and on our children,” Mt 27:25. If it be asked how it was possible for so many people to be slain in a single city, it is answered, that the siege of Jerusalem commenced during the time of the passover, it is estimated that more than three millions were usually assembled. See Josephus, Jewish Wars, book vi., chap. ix., 3, 4.
A horrible instance of the distress of Jerusalem is related by Josephus. The famine during the siege became so great that they ate what the most sordid animals refused to touch. A woman of distinguished rank, having been plundered by the soldiers, in hunger, rage, and despair, killed and roasted her babe, and had eaten one half of him before the deed was discovered. Jewish Wars, book vi., chap. 3, 3, 4. This cruel and dreadful act was also in fulfillment of prophecy, De 28:53,56-57.
Another thing added by Luke Lu 21:24) was, that “they should be led captive into all nations.” Josephus informs us that the captives taken during the whole war amounted to ninety-seven thousand. The tall and handsome young men Titus reserved for triumph; of the rest, many were distributed through the Roman provinces, to be destroyed by wild beasts in theatres; many were sent to the works in Egypt; many, especially those under seventeen years of age, were sold for slaves. Jewish Wars, book vi., chap. 9,. 2,3.
Coke’s Commentary on the Holy Bible
Then shall be great tribulation— In the preceding verses our Saviour warned his disciples to fly as soon as ever they saw Jerusalem besieged by the Romans, and now he assigns a reason for his giving them this caution. The words used in this verse seem to be a proverbial form of expression, as in Exodus 10:14. Joel 2:1 Maccabees ix. 27. Our Lord, therefore, might fitly apply the same manner of speaking upon the present occasion: but he does not make use of proverbial expressions without a proper meaning; and this may be understood even literally.
For indeed all history cannot furnish us with a parallel to the calamities and miseries of the Jews; rapine and murder, famine and pestilence within, fire and sword, and all the terrors of war without. Our Saviour wept at the foresight of these calamities; and it is almost impossible for persons of any humanity to read the relation of them without weeping too.
The Jewish historian might well say, as he does in the preface to his history: “If the misfortunes of all, from the beginning of the world, were compared with those of the Jews, they would appear much inferior upon comparison. In short, no other city ever suffered such things, as no other generation from the beginning of the world was ever more fruitful of wickedness.”
John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible
For then shall be great tribulation, This is urged as a reason for their speedy flight; since the calamity that would come upon those who should remain in the city, what through the sword, famine, pestilence, murders, robberies, etc. would
be such as was not since the beginning of the world, to this time, no, nor ever shall be. The burning of Sodom and Gomorrha, the bondage of the children of Israel in Egypt, their captivity in Babylon, and all their distresses and afflictions in the times of the Maccabees, are nothing to be compared with the calamities which befell the Jews in the siege and destruction of Jerusalem. Great desolations have been made in the besieging and at the taking of many famous cities, as Troy, Babylon, Carthage, etc. but none of them are to be mentioned with the deplorable case of this city. Whoever reads Josephus’s account will be fully convinced of this; and readily join with him, who was an eyewitness of it, when he says1, that
“never did any city suffer such things, nor was there ever any generation that more abounded in malice or wickedness.”
And indeed, all this came upon them for their impenitence and infidelity, and for their rejection and murdering of the Son of God; for as never any before, or since, committed the sin they did, or ever will, so there never did, or will, the same calamity befall a nation, as did them.
Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible
Mark hath the same in effect, Mark 13:19-20. Luke speaks more particularly, Luke 21:23-24, “For there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.”
These verses must be understood with reference to the Jewish nation, and whoso shall read in Josephus the history of the wars of the Jews, will easily agree there is nothing in all the foregoing Jewish story which we have recorded in Scripture like unto it; the final destruction of them by Titus was rather an abatement of miseries they suffered by the factions within themselves, than any thing else.
And thus some think that God shortened those days of their misery by sending the Roman armies to quiet the seditions and factions amongst themselves, which were more cruel one to another. God promises to shorten these days for the elect’s sake that were amongst this sinful people. So that as the city was taken in less than six months, so was their whole country in less than eighteen months more. And if the Lord had not, in compassion to those amongst this people who belonged to his election of grace, shortened these days of calamity, both by sending the Roman armies to quiet their intestine divisions, and then giving these armies so quick a victory, none of the Jews would have been left alive, which indeed any one will judge that shall but read those histories.
“That these calamities of the Jews, who were our Saviour’s murderers, were to be the greatest that had ever been since the beginning of the world, our Saviour had directly foretold, (#Mt 24:21; Mr 13:19; Lu 21:23,24) and that they proved to be such accordingly, Josephus is here a most authentic witness.”
The People’s New Testament
The account given by Josephus, the Jewish historian who witnessed and recorded the war, is almost an echo of the predictions of Christ. Women ate their own children from starvation; the Jews within the city fought each other as well as the Roman army; on August 10, A.D. 70, the city was stormed and there was a universal massacre; 1,100,00 persons perished, and 100,000 survivors were sold into slavery.
As you can see, the time of great tribulation that Messiah foretold in the Olivet Discourse was fulfilled in the first century, and that it was horrifying in its intensity.

End Times Deceptions Summary
Up until the 20th century, the saints taught the historical fulfillment of prophecy. And the great theologians of the 16th-20th centuries wrote whole Bible commentaries, explaining the historical fulfillment.
But since then, the futuristic deceptions of the Jesuits of Rome have taken hold, and are now deceiving the majority of believers.
What I teach in my prophecy study series is not just my ‘interpretation‘. These great theologians documented it in painstaking detail:
Albert Barnes’ Notes on the New and Old Testaments (1832)
The People’s New Testament Commentary by Barton Johnson (1891)
John Calvin’s Commentaries (1564)
Adam Clarke’s Commentary on the Bible (1826)
Geneva Bible with commentaries from the Protestant Reformation leaders. (1599)
Henry Grattan Guinness (1881)
John Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible (1809)
Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary Critical Explanatory on the Whole Bible (1871)
Matthew Poole’s Commentary on the Holy Bible (1679)
John Wesley’s Bible Notes (1765)
I’m just blessed to stand on the shoulders of these great theologians, who have taught me so much about the Word of Elohim.
I’ve merely put their explanations into concise studies, to help you see the fulfillment.
Sadly, the enemy has caused their witness to be pushed aside, and he has propped up false prophecy teachers to deceive the end times saints.
To understand prophecy fulfillment, I had to put aside the preconceived futuristicexplanations, which my Pastors had mistakenly programmed into my mind.
By reading the explanations of these great theologians, I was able to see what Scripture was proclaiming about the historical fulfillment of prophecy.
I’m not saying that all prophecy has been fulfilled yet, but the great majority has been.
When people don’t understand the historical fulfillment, they assign the prophecy to the future. But that is a trap, as the markers that people reference are false.
And that will leave them totally unprepared for what lies ahead as we await Messiah’s glorious return.
So my friend, you have a choice to make.
You can read the brief summaries below and click on the study links to read the detailed explanations.
Or based on your futuristic programming you can reject them, and click away.
I don’t know every prophecy explanation, but I have been shown a lot. And most of it is contrary to what today’s Pastors are teaching us.
Let’s start with the 70th week of Daniel, as most of the enemy’s deceptions are based on the concept of a futuristic 7-year tribulation period.
The 70th week of Daniel was fulfilled on time, after the 69th week, from 27-34 A.D; when Messiah and His disciples confirmed with the Jews for seven years, that He was the promised Messiah, who ratified the everlasting covenant as the Passover Lamb.
After the 70th week of Daniel was over, the Gospel was also shared with the Gentile nations; so that the temple of Messiah would be made up of Jews and Gentiles.
In the 16th century the Jesuits of Rome sought to counter the Reformation by creating the narrative about a one-man antichrist in a supposed end-times 70th week of Daniel, to try to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome; as the Protestant Reformers had rightly identified them as the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 and the antichrist beast of Revelation 13.
The saints did not believe the Jesuits deceptions for hundreds of years; but sadly today, it is now accepted by most Christians.
Read the 70th Week Of Daniel Bible Study series, which proves the historical fulfillment, showing that the concept of supposed end-times 7-year tribulation period is a deception of the enemy.
Once you understand the true fulfillment of the 70th week of Daniel, many of the Jesuits other deceptions fall apart, for they are based on it.
That includes the fulfillment of the prophecies in Revelation, which the enemy has caused people to believe will be fulfilled during the last half of the supposedfuturistic 7-year tribulation period.
Messiah proclaimed in Revelation 1:1 that the things that He was describing would take place shortly.
And indeed they were, as the seal judgments began immediately.
Revelation is the narrative of the battle of the Satan-empowered Roman beast, against Messiah and His kingdom of saints.
The Roman beast has changed forms over the years, but it was in power during Messiah’s ministry, and it will be destroyed by Messiah when He returns and casts anuncut stone at the iron/clay feet of the statue in Daniel 2.
Satan reigned in the pagan Roman Empire, where he was worshiped through all of their false Gods. He used them to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints, whose blood cried out for vengeance.
Messiah caused the decline of the Roman Empire with the seal judgments; which resulted in civil wars, famine and severe pestilence, causing many Romans to die.
Messiah then caused the fall of the Roman Empire with the trumpet judgments; which caused army after army to attack the vast Roman Empire; resulting in the last Western Roman Emperor (the head) being removed from power in 476 A.D.
Satan countered by empowering the antichrist Popes of Rome rise up in their place, healing the deadly head wound, as the Popes of Rome took the Emperor’s place as ruler of Church and State in 538 A.D., taking the title of Pontifex Maximus.
Satan used them to try to eliminate the Two Witnesses, as the Popes banned and burned the Scriptures and killed over 50 million saints.
Messiah exacted vengeance and caused the Roman Catholic Church to lose power through the Protestant Reformation; and then through the first four bowl judgments, as He caused the Catholics of France and Spain, who had obeyed the Popes order to slaughter the saints, to be killed during the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars.
The 1,260 year reign of the Popes of Rome came to an end in 1798 A.D., when Napoleon’s army took the Pope prisoner, where he later died.
Satan countered by empowering the Jesuits of Rome, who are a military organization, to take control of the Vatican. The Jesuit General, the Black Pope, who is the False Prophet, controls the White Pope; as is using the Vatican to gather the world under his power.
Jesuit priests have spread around the world teaching the false gospel of Catholicism, which now causes 1.2 Billion Catholics to revere/worship (mark on forehead) and obey(mark on right hand, actions) the antichrist Pope of Rome.
They also gather intelligence in these countries, taking the confessions of leaders, to use that information to control people and take control of the countries.
The Jesuits are using the city-state corporation of Vatican City to control the world’s religious and political leaders. It is using its city-state corporation of the City of London to control the world’s financial and trade organizations. And it’s using its city-state corporation of the District of Columbia, which is not part of the United States, to control the world’s intelligence agencies and military powers.
Satan (the dragon) will use the Pope (antichrist) and Jesuit General (false prophet) to cause WW III between Muslim countries and Israel, which will push the world into their One World Government; where people will cry out for peace. The Jesuits will offer a one-world religion in the name of peace, which ultimately will be Luciferian.
They will cause the Pope to act as a savior of sorts, proclaiming that the Vatican had been preparing for a world-wide financial collapse. No doubt they will have the Pope issue an order, giving people the choice of joining with them, perhaps giving people an RF-ID chip or tattoo to be able to buy and sell in their financial system.
By doing that they will draw the whole world under the power of the antichrist Pope, causing many to revere (mark of forehead) and obey (mark on right hand) his orders.
And if you don’t revere and obey the Pope, you won’t have the mark of the beast, and you will be cut off from their financial system, so that you can’t buy or sell.
The 7th bowl is the formation of the One World Government, in which the Jesuits of Great City of Rome will control the world through their three city-state corporations.
In the midst of the 6th bowl, Messiah proclaimed that He will return as a thief in the night. Paul told us that the wise won’t be caught off-guard by His return, but the deceived will.
Our Messiah will return to destroy His enemies, taking the antichrist Pope and False Prophet Jesuit General captive.

Maybe people mistakenly point to an Islamic antichrist, and the Muslims do play a significant role in prophecy, but Islam is simply a daughter of the Harlot of Rome
The Roman Bishops helped write the Qur’an and prop up the illiterate Mohamed as the prophet of Islam.
They did this to use the Muslims to kill Jews and saints, to conquer territory and kill their enemies, and to capture Jerusalem.
They did it to deceive Arabs, as the saints were spreading the Gospel around the world.
The 5th and 6th trumpets represent the Arab armies being used to attack the vast Roman Empire.
The 5th Trumpet represents the Lord using the Arabian (Mohammedan) army against the Western Roman Empire from 612-762 A.D., which is 150 years (5 months = 150 days). They wore turbans (crowns of gold); they had beards (faces of men); they had long hair like women; they wore chain-mail (breast-plates of iron); and they were fierce (teeth of lions). The falling star was Mohammed, the smoke out of Satan’s bottomless pit of lies is the Qur’an.
The 6th Trumpet represents the Lord releasing the Turks to cross over the Euphrates River to conquer 1/3rd of the Roman Empire for 391 years (prepared for the hour and day and month and year, 1 + 30 + 360 = 391) from 1062-1453 A.D., which ended when they used large cannons (out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone) to knock down the thick protective walls of Constantinople.
Read the Islam In Bible Prophecy study series, to see how the Muslims are the clay of the iron/clay feet of the statue in Daniel 2, which the Roman Catholic Church (the iron) has used to carry out their agenda.
You will see how the Jesuits of Rome are using the major Muslim countries and ISIS rebels, to carry out their Inquisition; and to cause WW III, which will push the world into their One World Government.
Most people assign Messiah’s Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24 to the end times, but Messiah clearly proclaimed that all those things would happen in that generation of Jews, who had rejected Him and delivered Him up to be killed.
Messiah had just berated the Jewish leaders, casting woe upon woe on them. He proclaimed that they would deliver Him up to be killed, and that they would kill the prophets that He would send to them; just like their fathers had killed the previous prophets.
The whole context of the Olivet Discourse is about the desolation of the temple, the city and the Jewish nation.
The main sign that the desolation of the temple was about to take place was that the pagan Roman army would surround the holy city, which Messiah and Daniel referred to as the Abomination of Desolation.
The pagan Romans were an abomination to the Jews, and they were sent by Messiah to desolate the Jews, fulfilling the prophecy in Daniel 9:26-27.
Jewish historian Josephus documents the fulfillment of the time of great tribulation for the Jews, that was so horrific that at the end, there were 1.1 million dead Jews lying out in the open, in and around Jerusalem; with wild animals and birds feeding on their bodies.
They died from famine, pestilence, infighting, suicide, crucifixion, and by the Roman sword.
The trees around Jerusalem were filled with the dead bodies of crucified Jews who had tried to sneak out of the city at night to find food.
Though more people have died in other times of tribulation, this grisly scene in the small city of Jerusalem, was so concentrated that Messiah proclaimed:
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Of this period of great tribulation Josephus says, in the introduction of his ‘Wars of the Jews‘ historical documentary.
“It had come to pass that our city Jerusalem had arrived at a higher degree of felicity than any other city under the Roman government, and yet at last fell into the sorest of calamities again. Accordingly it appears to me that the misfortunes of all men from the beginning of the world, if they be compared to those of the Jews, are not so considerable as they were.”
Read the new Olivet Discourse Bible study series, to see how all that Messiah foretold was indeed fulfilled in that generation of Jews.
Most people assign the Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2 to the end times, but the Apostle Paul’s warning was fulfilled in the 4th century, when Emperor Constantine and the Roman Bishops created Roman Catholic Christianity.
They created the pagan holidays of Easter(Ishtar) and Christ-mass, to replace Elohim’s seven Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem His set-apart people.
They moved everyone to a SUN-based calendar, to replace the Scriptural luni-solar calendar, on which the Holy Feast Days and Sabbaths are based.
They moved everyone to SUNday worship as the Lord’s Day, instead of the Scriptural Sabbath.
Messiah is fulfilling His Father’s seven Holy feast Days to redeem His set-apart people.
He fulfilled the Spring Feast Days of Passover, with His sacrifice as the Lamb of Elohim; Unleavened Bread, as He was sinless; and First Fruits, when He rose again. He fulfilled the Feast of Pentecost when He sent the Spirit to the saints.
He has yet to fulfilled the Fall Feast Days, which represent the harvest. He will return on the Feast of Trumpets, at the last trump. He will judge His saints on the Feast of Atonement. And He will marry His bride on the Feast of Tabernacles.
When Messiah declared in Revelation to ‘come out of Babylon’, He was not just talking to Roman Catholics who are in the harlot Babylonian Roman Catholic Church.
He is telling us to come out of the teachings of the Roman harlot, which sadly, most Protestant Churches teach and practice.
Read The Falling Away of 2 Thessalonians 2 Bible Study series, to see all that was changed so long ago.
This is very important as most believers have no idea of all of the changes that took place, which impact their beliefs and practices today.
The wise virgins understand the proper context of Messiah’s return.
They know that Messiah will return on the fall Feast of Trumpets, which is in September or October, depending on the year.
They know that we are at on the Revelation fulfillment timeline, so that they understand how close we are to Messiah’s declaration in the 6th bowl that He is returning soon as a thief in the night.
The question is, are you a wise virgin, who knows the truth of the fulfillment of prophecy, and has oil in their lamp?
Or are you an unwise virgin, who knows not the context of Messiah’s return, and has no oil?
I pray that you will humbly consider the explanations that I have provided.
I understand that they are contrary to futuristic explanations that we are being taught by Pastors. Satan has been very busy my friend, setting all of this up through his organization of people who serve him.
The deception is grand my friend! The Church has been infiltrated by the enemy. Seminaries such as Dallas Theological Seminary teach the Jesuit’s futuristic deceptions, so that the leaven of their deceptions has spread around the world.
We need to look back to what the great theologians taught throughout history, before the deceptions crept into the Church.
I’m no great theologian. I’m just a simple guy, who desires to know the truth and has put in a lot of time reading the historical explanations.
My contribution is to put the explanations into easy to understand studies, to help you see the fulfillment.
Pray for discernment, for without the Spirit guiding us, the enemy will deceive even the very elect.
Grace, peace and love to you,
You can start with this verse by verse explanation that proves that All Roads Lead To Rome.
Revelation Symbols Defined
This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study provides a table of symbols that were used by John in the book of Revelation.
These Revelation symbols are from The People’s New Testament Study Notes by
Barton W. Johnson
It must always be kept in mind, however, that this book is a book of prophecy, intended to “shew the things which must shortly come to pass.” John was a Seer. He recorded what he saw. The future was portrayed to him in a series of visions. The pictures which passed before his eyes represented future events. Hence, each is a symbolical representation of what was then future, and may now be past history.
Thus, when the first seal is opened in Revelation 6:1-2 , and a warrior is seen with a bow in his hand riding on a white horse in conquest, this must be interpreted as a sense-image which appropriately represents an event or epoch of history which was future when John was an exile on Patmos.
Symbolical pictures follow each other in rapid succession as the seals are opened and the trumpets blown, a correct interpretation of which is to be sought not in literal fulfillment, but in events of which the sense-visions might be appropriate symbols. It will be a help in understanding the text to have an explanation of the meaning of the various symbols employed as they are ordinarily used in prophetic writings; hence I give a TABLE OF SYMBOLS.
In this table I aim to give only the leading Symbols used by John, with their apparent meaning. The definitions have been obtained from Mede, Elliott, Lange, Campbell, Archdeacon Lea, and other sources.
